Wolverhampton Education Wellbeing Network

What is the network?

The Wolverhampton Education Wellbeing Network is a network of support for Senior Mental Health Leads and Pastoral Leads and is open to all educational settings in Wolverhampton. It is led and coordinated by the Wolverhampton Educational Psychology Service. The network aims to:

  • provide a space to share best practice regarding wellbeing and mental health
  • encourage connection and peer support for those involved in leading wellbeing and mental health in education settings and
  • provide information and advice about a wide range of topics and services relating to wellbeing and mental health.

How does the network connect?

Network Meetings: We have half termly network meetings which are usually face-to-face. Each meeting covers a range of topics, encourages practice sharing and discussions and gives a space for reflective group supervision. We know that it might not be possible to attend every meeting and so all resources are shared after the meeting. We cover a range of topics and previous agenda items have included:

  • Zones of Regulation
  • Welcoming Newly Arrived Refugees
  • Staff Wellbeing
  • Supporting students through exam periods

We support educational settings to share what they are doing and we also hear from a range of partners in the city including CAMHS, X2Y, Public Health, the Social Prescribing Service and voluntary sector organisations.

Microsoft Teams: We also have a Microsoft Teams Channel to enable members to ask questions, share resources and offer support to one another.
